Hi I'm Braydan D Bezzant

I am from American Fork, Utah. I play baseball. I am a missionary in Germany. I wear crazy socks and scarves, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to party. I am the oldest of six kids and almost the oldest on both sides of my extended family. I play baseball (I'm a natural catcher), the Tenor Sax, and I plan to spend an eternity with a companion a little bit more attractive than the ones I'm spending time with now. I am planning on becoming some type of doctor and I will be attending BYU Provo in the fall semester of 2016. I enjoy learning and I'm enthralled by the philosophies of religion and history. I love to make people laugh and you will be sure to find me wearing some type of crazy socks and pink shoelaces. Yeah, I'm pretty much one of the whitest people you could ever meet. I really do like long walks on the beach and love to live life. I can't wait to get back home to partying it up and beginning the next chapter of my life; but for now, I am serving the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

If you are reading this, you are probably hoping for some awesome conversion story. If that is what you are hoping for, then you might want to look somewhere else, because my conversion story is just as generic and authentic as any member who was born into the church. I Braydan, having been born of goodly parents. . . was raised in the church, but that doesn't mean that I don't have a conversion story. In fact, I do. I was born and raised with the values that I live today. I grew up being taught that this was true and I believed it, but that doesn't mean it all came at once. It came line upon line, precept upon precept. Here a little and there a little. Eventually my testimony and conversion blossomed. In all honesty, I don't think it came until late in my teens. I really do believe that we can always strive to make ourselves better and that the Lord has a very personal plan for each and every one of us, I know that this church is true, and I know that although I do not know everything, Jesus Christ is my savior and that through Him I have a purpose. I have hope. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Before I left on my mission, I had the opportunity to serve on the Seminary Council at my high school's LDS seminary. It was an absolutely incredible experience. This committee consisted of one male and one female member from each stake that attended AF. We planned for activities, created crazy posters, and spent a lot of time serving our fellow classmates. I am now serving a full time mission. I am dedicating two years of my life to helping others find the truth and happiness that can be found through living a gospel oriented life and will be sharing my experiences with the peace and joy that the Gospel brings. I absolutely love this Gospel and am so thrilled to have the opportunity to share that joy with the German people. I took four years of German in high school, and I have since realized that although you can learn so many things in a classroom, the only way to really experience it is by immersing yourself completely in the language and culture. I will return home from my mission and proceed to find a beautiful daughter of God to spend an eternity with. I only hope and pray that she says yes. I will also be attending medical school in pursuit of a medical position with the hopes that I will be able to both save lives, help others, and try to portray my beliefs and joy. I love this Gospel and cringe to think where I would be without it.
